  1. Take a lighter and heat the top guide until it slides off. grab a glue stick and put some tiny pieces into end of rod guide , heat it slightly again to melt glue and stick it back onto broken tip. You are repaired.

  14. Jay, unfortunately due to the City of Calgary's continued flood mitigation strategy, most of the water is going to get flushed through the system. Then they will dramatically reduce flows through the summer and fall to refill the many upstream dams for the winter. And, in tandem with the continued over diversion of the Bow and it's tributaries by commercial interests, it will ensure the Bow river trout fisheries future decline. The government chooses to blame C&R angling (and Guides), in the face of overwhelming scientific evidence to the contrary. Less Water = Less Fish. Period! The recent online Angling surveys, Guiding regulations surveys, Stakeholders meetings etc.... Smoke and Mirrors. (Hope to see you on the river this season, Jay.)

  16. Started on the tube fly journey late in 2021, and tying them like crazy in '22! Bottom left is a traditional full-body called 'Sillen' with a half-turbo tungsten cone. The middle is a non-body called 'In Flames', a favourite for stained, cold water. Tied using a TTT and full tungsten cone. The right non-body fly and the body with hook was a freestyle tie, using a TTT and full brass cones. I love tube flies.

  19. Well, as someone who sat on the Stakeholders engagement committee who got to see first hand how fishery managers collected (ESTIMATED) much of the data that they used to come to their conclusions regarding the status of the Bow fish populations, I will say that the majority of the committee's Stakeholders that I have spoken to are far from convinced that the government has got it right. Unlike the AEP fish techs and biologist who spend a few days a year electro fishing 2-3% of the Bow fish population and "guessing" the rest, there are some folks who spend a 100 days or more each year on the river and over the years (decades), have formed a wider angle perspective on the subject. As usual, the government did not seem interested in listening and did most of the talking. Many Stakeholder committee members, myself included, walked away shaking their heads in disbelief. The AEP narrative was apparent in last weeks PR Webinar presentation where they gave the general public a brief summary of their conclusions which was focused on "Recycle Rates", their new buzz word, which they created to sell their case.
